Teaching Artists from some of the world’s most respected
Shakespeare theaters will share active and playful approaches to
enliven the teaching of Shakespeare. All workshops are aligned
with Common Core Standards.
The ELA/literacy standards in the Common Core State Standards
highlight the growing complexity of the texts students must read
to be ready for the demands of college, career, and life. Closely
related to text complexity and inextricably connected to reading
comprehension is a focus on academic vocabulary, asking students
to determine word meanings, appreciate the nuances of words, and
steadily expand their range of words and phrases.
The standards include certain critical types of content for all
students, including classic myths and stories from around the
world, foundational U.S. documents, seminal works of American
literature, and the writings of Shakespeare.
In fact, Shakespeare is the only author included
specifically in the ELA standards for the Common
Core. This provides a significant opportunity for
educators to rethink how we approach Shakespearean
instruction. Rather than the traditional learning
of Shakespeare that rushes through themes and character, the
primary goal of the Common Core is to arm students with the
tools to understand, decode, and analyze complex texts.
The internationally renowned and experienced Shakespeare
Works when Shakespeare Plays presenters know the
best way to teach Shakespeare is to play with
Shakespeare. Our practitioners’ approaches to
teaching Shakespeare incorporate and strengthen all of the goals
of the Common Core through fun, meaningful and practical ways to
bring Shakespeare alive for students.

Invited Presenters and Sponsors
The weekend is presented by the UC Davis School of Education and
the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts at
UC Davis in association with Globe Education (Shakespeare’s
Globe, London) and the Shakespeare Theatre Association.
In California, the demand for professionals in science,
technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields will grow nearly
20 percent by 2018. Yet too few students are choosing STEM
fields. Nancy (’74, Cred ’75) and Tom Patten (’74, MS ’76)
believe that enthusiastic and well-prepared teachers are the key
to unlocking the state’s potential for innovation and prosperity.
To help train the next generation of STEM teachers, the
Pattens have pledged $100,000 to establish a new matching fund
for the School of Education: the Next Generation STEM Teaching
Award. The fund will support scholarships for School of
Education teaching credential students who have the interest,
passion, and aptitude to teach STEM-related subjects in K-12
By preparing UC Davis educators to inspire the next generation of
students to pursue STEM majors and careers, the School of
Education strengthens California’s and the nation’s ability to
tap the true potential of its future innovators.
